OCH MoT SHOP: Books and Magazines

Updated: May 10, 2022

What should be in a book section? Who should it serve? Locals, tourists or both? What have I missed in the ideas below?

* A $10 souvenir photobook of Old City Hall as well-designed as Ontario Heritage Trust's guide to the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres.

* Toronto History Section:

* See: Toronto History Museum Shop

* See: Spacing Magazine's lively history books

* SPECIAL DISPLAY: Michael Bliss's "The Discovery of Insulin" because of the huge number of citizens and visitors whose lives have been saved by Banting and Best -- and their decision to share their discovery free with the world.

* International bestsellers by Toronto Authors from Margaret Atwood to Margaret MacMillan.

* Toronto-set Mysteries and Novels Section:

* "Old City Hall" (of course!) and other books by Robert Rotenberg

* "Murdoch Mystery" and "Paradise Cafe Mystery" series by Maureen Jennings

* "Jonah Geller" series by Howard Shrier

* Toronto-set Graphic Novels:

* SPECIAL DISPLAY: "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World"

* Toronto Magazines:

* "Toronto Life", "Spacing" and possibly FREE publications like "NOW"?
